FTT #82

Inspired by Pope Francis’s emphasis on serving the poor, for the Triduum I bought a book about the corporal and spiritual works of mercy.  After reading the chapter about feeding the hungry, I did notice how often I get snacks for the kids.

Just as I turned the page to begin the chapter about clothing the naked, Tina the three-year-old appeared in the door–entirely naked.  “Papa,” she said, “I can’t find any clothes!”

I suppose with regard to my own kids it’s more of a work of justice than a work of mercy.
